The City of Lynn Haven is a thriving community centrally located in Bay County along the southern edge of North Bay. “Our goal is to become an even better family-oriented, walkable community with a vibrant small-business friendly downtown area that preserves our local small town heritage”, says Lynn Haven’s Mayor Walter T. Kelley. Lynn Haven is the second largest in Bay County with over 18,000 residents.
Lynn Haven citizens are involved, caring and active. They coach youth and adult sports in the Lynn Haven Recreation Complex, and they support the law enforcement work of the Lynn Haven Police Department. They serve on a wide range of volunteer boards and committees that report to its City Commission. They participate in civic and fraternal organizations such as the American Legion, Lions Club, Garden Club, Odd Fellows, Toastmasters, Masonic Lodge, Order of the Eastern Star, Rotary and others.
Lynn Haven residents enjoy the City’s many amenities and events. All ages can enjoy activities at the 60 acre Sports Complex located on Hilltop Lane. The Sports Complex includes a one mile walking/biking track, tennis courts, football fields, soccer fields, baseball/softball fields, shuffle board courts, weight room, and much more.
